ACTUALLY, YOU'RE LOVED : Sustaining Confrontation with the Intimate God

This is the opening talk for Ryan’s sermon series at Fall Retreat 2018 and part 1 of the Friday evening sermon. We begin the retreat with St. Augustine’s understanding of the love of God, and an overview of the various conversational artifacts which make up the titles for the sermons that weekend. Also, we discuss the value of self love, how that fits into a Christian perspective, and love as a relational activity.
